1.) Filipino Funk/Jazz/Rock Band. 2.)P.O.T. arrived on the limping alternative music scene of Manila, Philippines, with the sound and fury of a fireball -- and then just as quickly burned out. The funky rock band was formed by Karl Roy (vocals), Ian Umali (guitar), Mally Paraguya (bass), and a musical-chairs roster of drummers in Manila in 1995. Roy was originally the lead singer of new wave veterans Advent Call in the first half of the '90s. P.O.T. enabled him to unleash his eclectic influences, shaping the group's high-energy mix of soul, rock, and acid jazz.
